While California is banning all e-voting machines unless they agree to some fairly strict security provisions, it looks like Ohio has now authorized the use of e-voting machines for the November election. The state will require a paper trail for e-voting machines - but not until May of 2006. If they're going to require it anyway, I don't see why they shouldn't require it now. This basically means that for the next two years we have no way of knowing how accurate votes from Ohio will be.
